Parish Needs

Transform our Former Convent into the Ávila Center for Faith Formation

For many years our parish convent was a residence for the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary of the Woods who faithfully served the community of St. Teresa of Ávila, especially as educators for our youth. When the sisters moved out of the parish the building was used in various ways. Now it is not being used at all.
Our parish’s religious formation programs are in great need of help and renewal. Faith formation is one of the most important activities of a parish. We need a dignified space for our catechists to organize themselves, have meetings and have a dedicated space to share our Catholic faith with our young people. This will allow us to have a place for Bible Study and other adult spiritual renewal programs as well. The focus of our Called to Renew project, therefore, is to transform our former convent into the Ávila Center for faith formation. This will be a wonderful way to assist our parish community to do the work of the Gospel for years to come.

A Bold Plan of Renewal

We — the Catholic faithful — are the agents of renewal for Church and society. I am grateful for this opportunity to walk alongside clergy and parishioners in strengthening our parishes and ministries, the heart of our Archdiocese.
Archbishop José H. Gomez
